The aim of the study was to assess the effectiveness of supervised physical exercise program on geriatric depression in male population. To conduct the study 50 elderly males (Average age 66.34 years) were selected as sample. Only those subjects with scores greater than 10 on geriatric depression scale were selected as sample.
